By , March 26, 2017 2:44 pm

A recent survey to establish current issues and opportunities for women’s cricket has been carried out by specialist cricket supplier, Cricket Deal Direct (CDD) with the support of England Women’s cricket captain, Heather Knight.

“As a brand ambassador for the SM range of cricket kit which CDD imports from India, I know that the team there have a genuine passion for the women’s game, which is why I congratulate them on carrying out this survey” says Heather.

CDD Managing Director, Ian Anderson adds, “The main findings include the need for there to be greater clarity about the pathways for girls to follow from playing cricket at school through to their local club and beyond, which is why it’s great to see that the ECB are providing more support to county cricket boards this year to encourage more participation by girls.

The survey highlights a number of key issues, including the importance of the media in continuing to raise awareness of the women’s game, which we hope will be addressed by coverage of the World Cup and Kia Super League later this year.”

A full copy of the survey findings is available at the CDD blog www.cricketdealdirect.com

To co-incide with the publication of the findings of this survey, CDD has announced that it’s sponsorship of Heather Knight as a brand ambassador will continue for a further two years, with Heather continuing to play with the HK 149 bat and protection, which are part of The Heather Knight Collection available exclusively from CDD.

Ian Anderson says, “We are delighted to be working with Heather and are proud to support her and other top players, who inspire girls and women of all ages to play cricket at all levels. The products we offer as part of The Heather Knight Collection are available at stockists around the UK, and we have a number of exciting plans to make this quality range even more accessible during 2017.
